1945 – 1st Bn Oxf & Bucks LI – North West Europe
On the 30th it passed through Bocholt (2260) and now was once more at the head of the pursuit, travelling in Kangaroos. A Company deployed and cleared Haken (295690) and B Company passed straight through and took Veldboom (297692). A few prisoners were taken.
A Company remounted and set off again, but a self-propelled gun knocked out the leading tank, and since the ground was too soft for vehicles to move off the road, proceeded to pick off eight Kangaroos/three of them still full of troops. Casualties were lighter than might have been expected, but included Lieutenant Selby and Serjeant Walton. The gun then moved off and the subsequent attack found no opposition.
